The just-so complexity of this piece leaves me in total wonder at Cindy's artistic skill and creative imagination. Everything about it works. I only wish we could see a large-sized version of this, like we can with Tiffany's windows.

Absolutely crazy about the deep tangerine glass paired with cornflower blue dichroic, my all-time favorite color combo. How does Cindy dream up these incredible compositions?!

The precision and tasty proportions of this bi-color design make it a stand-out. Now I have to decide which sister to give them to. Suits any coloring or hair style.

About

Leaving Corporate America Became a Dream in Art

I started making stained glass panels, Windows and Lamps 24 years ago. I was designing foyer Transom, side windows and Kitchen Cabinet Panels. I wanted some fused glass circles made with frit (powdered Glass) and blending techniques which developed into a passion for fusing. After leaving Corporate America after 35 years in 2002 I started making the art pieces for the windows and then tiles for my bathroom. I had so much scrap that I didn't want to throw away so I started making jewelry and found my true love. Since then I haven't looked back. I had a brick and mortar studio for a couple of years where I taught fusing and sold supplies but found that so much time was dedicated to managing the business I didn't have time to create. I moved out of the shop and into my home studio and started selling on line. It has been a labor of love, as they say, and I am truly addicted to glass especially Dichroic. Ask anyone that has seen my studio and the containers and piles of glass and they will attest to that. I love a challenge and have learned so much and developed new techniques in response to special custom requests and hope that this continues on for years to come.

    I have been working with Glass for about 24 years now and continue to be intrigued with the processes involved in converting it to art. While I like making artistic panels and functional ware I truly enjoy making wearable art.
